I loved the coating for this chicken! The flavors are just right and it came out so nice and crispy. We also tried it over waffles for "chicken and waffles" and it sure was good that way too. Thank you, Luvcookn, for sharing. Made it for PickMe Tag.

We loved how the flavors from the ingredients were right into the meat. It was so tasty! The coating was crispy and delicious too. We will have this again!

Great chicken which we enjoyed. We used 8 chicken thighs instead of the drumsticks but otherwise made as directed but using sour milk in place of the buttermilk. Very easy and used ingredients I always have on hand so there will definitely be a repeat of this dish. Thanks for sharing!
